Strengths

Possesses an ideal blend of power and speed. Very polished. Fundamentally sound with an assortment of moves. Prototypical size/strength on the edge. Strong hands and upper body. Effectively uses power to shed blockers. Has shown a plus bull rush. Good burst and bend as a speed rusher. Exceptional first-step quickness at the snap and closing quickness around the ball. Elite football intelligence. Recognizes pass sets and understands leverage. Plays with a relentless motor. Punishes people. Sets the edge against the run. Can kick inside for obvious passing situations. High-end production at Ohio State.

 

Weaknesses

Missed most of the 2018 season with an abdominal injury. Doesn’t quite have top-flight athleticism. Can be a little stiff. Likely better suited to play with his hand in the dirt.

 

NFL comparison

Joey Bosa – While more of a pure edge than his brother Joey (who started his NFL career as a 3-4 defensive end before kicking outside in a scheme change), it’s easy to see the similarities between the two as well-rounded, technically-sound defenders.

 

Conclusion

Overall, Nick Bosa is a prototypical defensive end that uses power, speed, and polish to dominate opponents. At the next level, Bosa should have immediate double-digit sack potential with an All-Pro ceiling.
